Abstract: In wireless sensor network energy consumption is the recent research trend. Sleep scheduling and clustering of nodes in mobile environment are two different approaches adopted to elongate the life of network. In this paper Mobility Aware Clustering routing algorithm (MACRON) is proposed by integrating two challenging approaches. In the sleep scheduling approach, the node takes the decision for their states independently in decentralized manner. Using this reward based approach; the node decides its own current state (sleep, wake, idle) and it also predict the state of neighbors without communicating with neighbors. The performance improvement of sleep scheduling algorithm is significant but, to enhance performance it should be integrated with clustering approaches. To support the mobility in wireless sensor network various MAC protocol has been proposed, but they consume huge energy for data transmission. The proposed MACRON algorithm works efficiently in both mobile and stationary network. The performance of proposed algorithm gives decent outcome in varying size of nodes ranging from 10 to 40 in ns-2.
